The left-wing late-night hosts floated a range of conspiracies about President Donald Trump’s off the record visit to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center this weekend, with Stephen Colbert even admitting he wants Trump to stay healthy so he can end up in “handcuffs.”
On Monday evening, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham released a memorandum from the Physician to the President Dr. Sean Conley confirming that Trump had been given the all-clear.
“This past Saturday afternoon the President traveled up to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a routine, planned interim checkup as part of the regular, primary preventative care he receives throughout the year,” Conley wrote. “Due to scheduling uncertainties, the trip was kept off the record.”

However, left-wing comedians were left seemingly left unconvinced by the announcement, with The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah disputing the reference to breaking annual physical health checks into phases.”
